Default Help with FileReader and writer

I am receiving a text file. The first three lines of the file are patient information and after that, it contains the patient test result which is tab delimited (/t). I need to save the patient information from the top and then delete the first 3 lines and save the file as is.

I created one file reader and was able to store the first three line values in a variable for later use but it's not deleting the line 2. In addition to that, it's also removing /n after each line and in the output file, it saves the entire file as a single line instead of keeping the file as is. I need the file as is in the tab-delimited format after deleting the top three lines.

Can someone point out my mistake? I did try to play around with set data type options under summery but no luck so far.

I am using 3.7.0. Please see the attached channel and the sample test file.
